The town is referred to as "Fränkische Stadt" (Franconian city) in order to distinguish it from the district. Aschaffenburg lies in the Main-Rhine Euroregion, which comprises a continuous chain of directly neighboring settlements starting at the French border and ending just before Frankfurt Airport. The town's total land area is 65% wooded. It is situated on both sides of the Main in a flat landscape that contains few hills and no mountains or valleys. In the north, Aschaffenburg borders on Lower Franconia; in southern direction it adjoins to Upper Bavaria (Bavarian Swabia). In this context, one speaks of "Obermainfranken" when referring to those areas; however, there are no clear geographical demarcation lines between these two regions because they form a continuum within each other with little geographic differences between them except for their names ("Mainfranken" = Lower Franconia vs Obermain = Upper Bavaria).
